Tax codes in Sage Accounts – Ireland only

Sage Accounts calculates VAT using tax codes. Each tax code has a rate associated with it and the VAT calculates based on this rate.To save you time when posting transactions, you can use the default tax codes already set up in your software. You can edit any of these tax codes or you can add your own.

There are 100 tax codes in total, and for each one you can amend the rate and description. You can also specify if it’s an Irish or EU tax code, and choose if you want to include it in your VAT Return.

Before you proceed any further, check that your computer’s regional settings is set to Ireland and not UK. For more information about how to do this, please refer to article 33741.
